Who is your favourite character of all time?
This is actually quite difficult question for me to answer. How do you narrow 30years of characters from movies, television and books to pick just one??
What would your answer be??
I’ll have to get back to you on that….
after having a chance to really think about it! I realised just how difficult this is to answer… I have so many favourite characters from so many different areas. I. Old have picked somebody like Astro Boy, because when I was a kid, Astro really was the shit. Come on, he was a robot boy who always saved the day… And he had ROCKETS FOR LEGS!!! Then I was thinking maybe along the lines of movies and I thought perhaps my fav movie character would be James Bond… But then I thought, well, it would be much easier if I did like my top 5 of each and then selected characters from each of those… All the while in the back of my head there’s a tiny voice saying “diagram! Chart! Mind map!!”. Hmmmm. Or do I do a favourite genre, like fav reality show star, or fav talk show host, or fav comedy show star? That might be easier:
- Favourite tv drama character: Emily Thorn – Revenge; almost everybody from Brothers and Sisters; almost everybody from Grey’s Anatomy;
- favourite tv comedy character: Edina Monsoon from Ab-Fab; Jerri Blank from Strangers With Candy; Whitney Cummings from Whitney, Max from 2 Broke Girls; almost every single character from Big Girls Blouse;
- favourite tv cartoon character: Jake & Finn from Adventure Time; Stewie Griffin from Family Guy; Roger from American Dad; Linda from Bobs Burgers
- favourite character from Sex and the City: Samantha.
- favourite ‘Friend’: Phoebe
- Favourite Real Housewife: NeNe (Atlanta)
- favourite Seinfeld character: Elaine
- Favourite SNL sketch: Oreana and Craig the Cheerleaders (Cheri o’teri & will ferrel) “cha-cha-boochie, cha-cha-chaboochie, ROLL CALL”
- favourite game character: Lara croft – Tomb Raider; Chase McCain – Lego City
- favourite comedian: Kathy griffin;
- favourite talkshow: Chelsea lately
Well, those last two don’t actually count because they’re real people, I guess. As you can see, it’s hard to define a favourite character, let alone a favourite genre – and these are the ones that I just listed off the top of my head. What other areas would you like to ask me??
